    WHY did I just spend ALL my money and commit more to stupidass tuition

    WHY

    Graghhh. That would tide me over quite ably til I could get a 2228. Gas

    Free shipping worldwide? I might just get it instead of an RGA8.

    EDIT: How different is it from the RGA8?

    I know the neck is a bit thicker, and the scale is 1/2 inch different. I wasnt happy with the feel of the shorter scale on my old schecter 8, but that was just me. Either way it looks like a nice affordable option.

    Indeed it does, especially for someone with little money and talent like me. One thing I noticed was that the heel on the back of the neck looks so big. Does that hinder soloing on the high frets at all?

    bought the schecter damien elite 8 about 3 months ago and turns out not to be that bad. if you go from a six to an 8 it seems to be a little diffucult a first. try using a seven for a while then give it a shot.

    its not all that bad but at some points you can feel your hand stretch little more than it's suppose to. ive played the ibanez rg2228 and the neck on it is terrific. I heard the rg8 is has that same feel. Cheaper than the bullshit rg2228. Good guitar but overpriced. Dont go with the schecter 8. Very uneasy feel to it. Go with the ibanez or the agile intrepid.

    if uve never played a bass guitar then the transition will take a lil time but if u play bass then its not that big a deal. ive played on a 6 sting bass for about 2 1/2 yrs befor i pawned if for bill money then lost it :wallbash:

    you're name is schecterelite8 and you're not recommending it??

    I'm perfectly happy with the elite 8's neck, other than the fact it's a bolt on

    Seeing as how ERG are gaining popularity and there are now quite a few available online and on Craigslist I've decided that ERG followers require their own thread.

    So please post in here all the eBay/Craigslist/Steals whatever/wherever you can find them.

    Agile Septor 828MN NAT ASH In DFW, TX. I'd buy it but I can't afford it right now. Hopefully one of you local cat's will see it and hop on it. I double checked with the dude, it's the exact guitar in the Rondo link he posted. Good luck!

    I see. Well that sucks, I find alot of these morons on craigslist are tryin to get rich off one sale. It's rather annoying. =\

    There was a dude tryin to sell the $399 7 string Ibanez for $450 earlier this week.
